Worked to distraction!

I did have my mind set on making and  posting off all etsy plus NOTHS  orders plus making a present for Lewis’s fourth birthday plus 27 cushions. Do you think I might have been a little over optimistic? Well, I did manage the first bit, and the second but fell far short of any cushion activity.

Colette, bless her soul, dutifully ironed seams and even cut two egg cosies and a hen while I made a truck bag for Lewis’s birthday. Lunch (her payment) fell far short of minimum wage with a couple of stale oat cakes, a paltry slice of mild cheddar and a smear of mayonnaise. Will she ever return I wonder?

The egg cosies and Dierdre the hen were whipped into shape in a pedal push and a needle jab and a Moss nest sewn and packaged in a whirlwind of motion.

Dierdre MacColl Caught with her legs in the air!

And then I looked at my watch. Bum…3.30 and we were supposed to be at Lewis’s party half an hour ago.

Och well. I’ll just make the 27 cushions tomorrow… Yeh right!
